Re: 4images 1.7.3 Installation [from DOCS Folder]

BASICALLY I UNDERSTAND WHERE ALL THE PROBLEMS FOR EVERYONE COME FROM! there r just too many different versions to download from 4images website and people always mess up the rigfht installation! For me when i loaded i had to put in the host name, password, basename and so on BUT it was just plain fields with no design in php.

So i loaded new OTHER file over the old one and it all worked!

Hey guys
A while ago I updated to 1.7.4 and all seemed to work ok.
However it seems like people cannot register themselves as new members. I checked the chmods as instructed but no luck. What can be wrong?
Best regards

Hi guys,

I'm trying to set up a localhost environment for testing, but get stuck in the installation.
Installation routine went fine, database entries were created, config.php looks as it should (afaik),

Code: [Select]
$db_servertype = "mysql";
$db_host = "localhost";
$db_name = "imgdb";
$db_user = "root";
$db_password = "*******";

$table_prefix = "4images_";

define("4IMAGES_ACTIVE", 1);

?>

However, after changing rights and deleting the install and update files, the script still tries to enter the install.php and ends up with "No input file specified"

System:
W2K, IIS 5, php 5.1.1, MySQL 5.0.16-nt,

Safe mode is off, phpinfo can be seen here http://gerster.gmxhome.de/phpinfo.htm

TIA
TGer76

Is the starting <?php missing in your config.php or did you just forgot to post it?

I just joined the forum, can someone give me a few tips on getting started.  First of all, what's the licensing restrictions if a college ROTC department wants to used this software for its website.

  ==========================================================
                  4images Installation
  ==========================================================
What   ----------------------------------------------------------
  System Requirements:
  ----------------------------------------------------------
  - A webserver or web hosting account (Linux/Apache recommended).
  - PHP version 4.0.5 or higher (we recommend to use always the latest stable version).
    To ensure that 4images is functioning properly, "safe_mode" should be disabled
    ("safe_mode = off" in your php.ini).
  - MySQL version 3.23 or higher (we recommend MySQL version 3.23.33)

  Optional:
  - In order to make thumbnails and reduced size images you need PHP compiled with
    the support for the GD library (http://www.boutell.com/gd) or the ImageMagick
    "convert" utility (http://www.imagemagick.org) or NetPBM (http://netpbm.sourceforge.net).


  ----------------------------------------------------------
  Installation:
  ----------------------------------------------------------
  (For updating from earlier versions see Update.english.txt)

  1. Decompress the .zip archive to a local directory on your system and FTP all
     the files it contains (being sure to retain the directory structure) to your host.
     Once all the files have been uploaded to your site you should point your browser
     at this location.

  2. Now, the Install-Screen comes up. Fill out the required fields and press
     "Start Installation".

  3. The installation script will create and populate all the necessary tables in
     your database and some basics settings.

  4. The Install-Script will then attempt to write to the config.php file which will
     contain the basic configuration data . If the installer cannot write config.php
     directly you will be given the option of downloading the file. You should then
     re-upload the file to your server, overwriting the existing config.php in the
     process.

  5. Set permissions for the following directories:

     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/database
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/media
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/thumbnails
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/tmp_media
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/tmp_thumbnails
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : templates
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : templates/default
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : templates/default/media

     Set permissions for the following files:

     chmod 666 (-rw-rw-rw-) : all files in the directory "templates/default"
     chmod 666 (-rw-rw-rw-) : all files in the directory "templates/default/media"

     You can do this with FTP programs such as CuteFTP or WS_FTP.

  6. You must ensure you remove "install.php" and any "update_*_to_*.php" files.
     Additionally you may delete all files in "data/database/default" and
     the "docs" directory if you wish.

  7. At this point your basic installation is complete. Please be sure to check the
     General Configuration details and make any required changes in your Control Panel.

  8. Since version 1.7.1, 4images has an internal caching system.
     Please read docs/Cache.english.txt for further informations.

  ==========================================================
                  4images Installation
  ==========================================================

  ----------------------------------------------------------
  Systemvoraussetzungen:
  ----------------------------------------------------------
  - Ein Webserver oder ein Webhosting Account (Empfohlen wird Linux/Apache)
  - PHP Version 4.0.5 oder höher (Empfohlen wird die jeweils aktuellste Version).
    Um zu gewährleisten, dass 4images einwandfrei funktioniert, sollte "safe_mode"
    deaktiviert sein ("safe_mode = off" in your php.ini).
  - MySQL Version 3.23 oder höher (Empfohlen wird MySQL Version 3.23.33)

  Optional:
  - ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org) oder GD (http://www.boutell.com/gd)
  - Um Thumbnails and verkleinerte Bilder erstellen zu können, wird PHP mit Unterstützung
    der GD Bibliothek (http://www.boutell.com/gd) oder das ImageMagick
    "convert" Programm (http://www.imagemagick.org) oder NetPBM (http://netpbm.sourceforge.net)
    benötigt.


  ----------------------------------------------------------
  Installation:
  ----------------------------------------------------------
  (Für Update von älteren Versionen siehe Update.deutsch.txt)

  1. Entpacken Sie das .zip Archiv (z.B. mit WinZip) und übertragen Sie alle Dateien
     in ein geeignetes Verzeichnis auf Ihren Webserver (Achten Sie darauf, dass die
     Verzeichnisstruktur erhalten bleibt) und rufen Sie dieses Verzeichnis
     über Ihren Browser auf.

  2. Nun erscheint die Installationsmaske von 4images. Tragen Sie alle
     geforderten Daten in das Formular ein und klicken Sie auf "Installation starten".

  3. Es werden jetzt die benötigten Tabellen in Ihrer Datenbank erstellt und
     Grundeinstellungen vorgenommen.

  4. Der Installer erstellt während der Installation eine Konfigurationsdatei mit dem
     Namen config.php im gewählten Installationsverzeichnis.
     Sollte der Installer diese Datei nicht direkt auf Ihrem Server speichern können
     (z.B. wenn er nicht die erforderlichen Schreibrechte besitzt), erscheint am Ende
     der Installation ein Hinweis und die Möglichkeit diese Datei herunterzuladen.
     Laden Sie sich die Datei herunter und übertragen Sie diese auf Ihren Webserver.

  5. Setzen die angegebenen Zugriffsrechte für folgende Verzeichnisse:

     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/database
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/media
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/thumbnails
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/tmp_media
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : data/tmp_thumbnails
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : templates
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : templates/default
     chmod 777 (drwxrwxrwx) : templates/default/media

     Setzen die angegebenen Zugriffsrechte für folgende Dateien:

     chmod 666 (-rw-rw-rw-) : alle Dateien im Verzeichnis "templates/default"
     chmod 666 (-rw-rw-rw-) : alle Dateien im Verzeichnis "templates/default/media"

     Dies können Sie z.B. mit FTP-Programmen wie CuteFTP oder WS_FTP tun.

  6. Löschen Sie die Datei "install.php" und alle "update_*_to_*.php" von Ihrem Server.
     Zusätzlich können Sie die Dateien im Ordner "data/database/default" und den
     Ordner "docs" löschen.

  7. Die Installation ist nun abgeschlossen. Sie können sich nun mit Ihrem bei der
     Installation gewählten Usernamen und Passwort in den Administrationsbereich
     einloggen und unter "Allgemein -> Einstellungen" Die Einstellungen für Ihre Galerie
     vornehmen.

  8. Seit Version 1.7.1 enthält 4images ein internes Caching-System.
     Ausführliche Informationen finden sie in der Datei docs/Cache_de.txt.

Ok, I did upload all files using CUTE FTP and automatic ASCCI-Binary file option, now everything is up, the thing is that when running the install.php everything is ok, so I fill the fields...



But when clicking installation starten a huge list of unexpected errors appear, should I change the CHMOD's listed before or after runnig the installation?

Thanks
